Helios comes from a historic family plot in the area of Contessa Entellina, from vines over 30 years old, not irrigated.
A Nero d’Avola and persuasive Syrah with aromas of sweet spices, shades of blackberries and black cherry and earthy suggestions.
Balanced, silky and round, with a tannic texture of great finesse and a beautiful saline line that gives freshness and length to the flavors.
